Objective: The goal of this study was to evaluate the anaesthetic method used in patients who have undergone caesarean section. Methods: The anaesthetic reports that belong to the women who underwent caesarean section between the years 2014 and 2015 were evaluated in terms of the demographic data, anaesthetic methods, and reported complications. Results: Although 299 patients received general anaesthesia, 75 patients received regional anaesthesia during caesarean section. Mortality was not observed in any patient. Conclusion: Although regional anaesthesia is currently being used mostly in many countries for caesarean sections, our patients chose the general anaesthesia. Making the method of anaesthesia depend on patients’ preferences with the exception of some special conditions such as patients’ fear and anesthesiologist’s additional aliments might have a role in this circumstance.
